COUNTING MY BLESSINGS

I’m trying to make counting my blessings a daily habit. It’s been a nice day. I had friends over for brunch this morning. So that’s gratitude number 1), that I do have friends, not many but they are very good friends. Gratitude 2) That we can always have a good time together. We don’t worry much about the state of our house or whether what we serve is good enough. Gratitude 3) Even though I don’t worry too much about what I offer, I am still grateful my very first quiche turned out well and my left over Jamie Oliver pumpkin, chickpea and coconut curry from Thanksgiving was delicious as a soup. It wasn’t supposed to be soup but you know how these things can happen. I love the golden orange colour of these 2 dishes. So nourishing and warming on a cool October morning.

I do believe that we can decide how we feel and therefore direct the course of our daily life. First we have to know what it is that we want and how we want to feel. Then we have to figure out the steps to achieve it. Having done that, we must do the action. Sometimes I can do the first two and then fail on the action. It is easy to stumble and get discouraged. It is easy to hesitate, procrastinate and not start at all. I’ve been there and have done all that. It is not easy to see and understand that it is the first and last steps are the hardest. I see and understand that now. It’s a good reason for me to put in a good effort and push towards the finish line of this Ultimate Blog Challenge. I like to finish what I have started.

  1. It can be tough to stay motivated and on track, especially when we feel like we’re not making progress. But it sounds like you’ve got a great attitude and are doing everything right! Just keep up the good work, and you’ll get there in no time. 🙂

    And, once again, since I am here, I have to say I love your Gratitude Practice!

  2. What a great daily habit to have. I also know you will finish the challenge, you can do it! Your photos look delicious especially the quiche. I have to make that sometime.

  3. WE have so many things to be thankful for that it is hard to stop at naming just three. I agree that being able to connect with friends again is a big one and warm soup at this time of year is a great way to relax and reflect.
